f you didn't watch Sesame Street during your childhood, did you really have a childhood at all? Elmo is among the most beloved Sesame Street characters and, using his notoriety, has issued a much-needed challenge to the world.
Elmo decided there needed to be a little bit more laughter in the world, which is definitely true. Especially this week. This year. Whatever.
So he issued a challenge along with the help of his lovely friend Kate McKinnon to share their funniest jokes.
In typical Elmo fashion, the jokes are cute and very wholesome.
But they might at least get a wry smile out of you, and it’s hard to argue with the idea!
At its core, the #ShareALaugh challenge is a simple thing.
It just wants to instill happiness, laughter, and kindness in children and also adults, I presume.
Elmo even appeared on the Today Show this morning to help spread awareness for his campaign.
And it looks like it worked because the world has taken notice of #NationalTellAJokeDay.
His pal Cookie Monster has even gotten in on the fun.
Most of the jokes are very lighthearted and mostly intended for younger audiences, which is to be expected.
